    You can buy The Ultimate Wizardry Archives used on the usual marketplace websites. It contains Wizardry 1-7. Or you can download the CD image from archive.org and pretend you bought it.

    Dominions 1 & 2 are available for sale on the illwinter website https://www.illwinter.com/

    Yup, the only way to get an original copy. I got mine very recently from local marketplace for just 30$, worst case scenario - get it from Ebay but be prepared to pay 3-4 times that.
    For some stupid reason they never got a digital release even though Sirotek still owns the rights to Wiz 1-5.

    It's for the best. So many old, good RPGs used to be available for free on abandonware sites, then GOG snatched them up, made the abandonware sites take the links down and started charging ten bucks a pop for 25 year old games.

    When you look at the remaster of Final Fantasy 1-6 on Steam i about vomit. I'm not saying they're bad but jesus christ they sure like milking that cow hard.

    just saw an archive for $999.95 on ebay. FUCK NO!

    If you've already played them, I've heard the SNES version of Wizardry I,II,III are worth playing. There's a fan translation patch for them.

    Yeah, Dominions is not one of those games where you gain anything playing the older ones, I don't think.
    It's basically always the same game, no story, but each one improves on the previous one, so just play the latest.

    I had a physical copy of Dominions 3, with its big spiral-bound manual, and I threw it away years ago. Shame.
